Dear Journal,

I know that life has been extremely busy for me of late and that it seems as if I don’t have time to write as often as I would like, however, duty calls on you to leave the personal things to the side and attend to the things at hand.  Can’t say that I am overly fond of the thought of ignoring my family and it is something that I rarely do – just as the Pandaren say, what do you fight for?  I am still of the mind that I am fighting for my family, my home and then, for my faction.  Family will always come first to me due to my upbringing and how things could have been so different if I hadn’t had the opportunity to grow up with a family that loved me.

I know that I am as guilty as the next man for not thinking before I act sometimes, however, I have learned over the years through my own experience that actions, no matter how trivial, will always have consequences.  I know that I have had my hands full with my duties of late and fighting with demons for most of my waking moments, however, there are times when one must call a halt to all that and try to give your life some attention.

Oh, Amyn and I are doing fine, and we are finding time to spend with one another even in the Broken Isles and we aren’t taking as many risks in being exposed as we might have taken when we were younger.  We’re both older now and more cautious since we have both of our families to consider and our own children.  My eldest son, Kaldor, is here in the Broken Isles as well and I do have some concern for him because he does have the rashness of his Mother and myself that might lead him astray from time to time.  Of course, Amyn and I can’t expect to spend as much time with him as we would like which is understandable since he is still acting as Scout for the Sentinels as is his duty – I know he must be missing Kaelendra because she is back in Draenor attending to her duties there.

I will have to admit that I was in hopes that Kal and Kae would have taken their vows already, however, Kal seems to be a bit hesitant with that aspect of his life.  He loves the girl and there is no doubt in my mind in that regard, however, he is just biding his time with the formality of it.  I’ll be honest, Amyn and I would love to have a grandchild some day soon – there are no guarantees that our bloodline will continue with these constant wars that seem to happen in Azeroth.

With the rumors that are floating around these days, I almost feel like history is going to be repeating itself yet again.  I felt like we had finally made some kind of compromise with the Alliance while Varian was still alive, however, with Anduin taking his Father’s place after his untimely demise – I’m not so sure that the uneasy truce we had will last, not with Greymane bending the young fellow’s ear every chance he gets – the hatred that he feels for our current Warchief is not going to be easily appeased.  I can understand some of the things that are going on, however, I do wonder if our diplomats aren’t a bit off point with some of the actions that are starting to rear their ugly heads again.

The only peaceful time that I can recall was when I bought the house in Dalaran and lived there for few years.  Of course, we had to still fight the scourge and we still had to deal with all the things that were going on in Northrend at the time.  The Lich King’s demise couldn’t have happened at a better time as far as I am concerned.  Not only were the Death Knights freed from his control, I was freed from my military obligations for a while and that’s when I started my business.  Dawnglory and I both spent a great deal of time getting the business going and Amyn did her part as well.  It was a time of peace for all of us – not long lasting, mind you, however, it was a peace that we had never known.  Looking at how things have turned out, I was in the right place at the right time to build my alternative lifestyle with my love and with my business.

I know that Dawnglory is happy to have his family back with him and I know the rest of us are relieved.  I don’t think that I have ever seen the poor fellow so devastated during the whole time they were missing.  Yes, everyone that knew him was worried that he might not make it if we couldn’t find his family.  I know exactly how he feels too because I’ve experienced similar things and I sometimes wondered if life was worth living without my loved ones.

Ah well, I suppose I ought to just stop here for a while and get back to the business at hand and start getting back into a routine of sorts.  These demons are slowly dwindling down, and I wonder if we will ever be able to cleanse Azeroth of them.

OOC – December 18, 2017 – Busy Times


December 18, 2017

 

Well, it’s another OOC entry for me today, however, it’s better than none at this point.  I’ve been busy in RL getting things organized.  Yes, the end of the year is always fun and when you’re living with someone that is the King of Procrastination, it adds a few bumps in the road at the end of the year.

Sitting here drinking a cup of coffee and trying to convince myself that I should get off my behind and get showered and cleaned up for the day but it’s not working, just one more cup of coffee and I’ll do that.

I have been playing a bit more in the last few days getting some of my characters leveled up that I haven’t worked on in a while.  Still enjoying Legion, however, I do miss my other characters when I leave them alone for a while.  Yes, I know I have too many characters and can’t even imagine that I could keep up with them all, however, I enjoy playing different classes and different areas of the game, so, it is worth it to me.

Christmas is coming soon, and I haven’t even finished doing all the things that I want to do.  We have been spending more time with the family and even playing in-game together with them has been fun too.  My guilds are usually very quiet, however, this past week, they have been jumping with activity – seems some folks are finally returning to the game after taking so much time off.  With a lot of the time gated stuff being “open” now, it makes it easier and faster for them to catch up.

I did startup a few new characters on another realm this month and have established a guild there as well.  Seems like I do better when I have the guild umbrella over my head and can do pretty much what I want when I want.  Thank heavens for Group Finder at this point.  I had been on this realm for a while searching for some old friends and even though that hasn’t been that successful yet, I will keep going and enjoying some of the RP that I have stumbled upon. 

Starting to get the immersion in-game started again and will start putting together some more journals for my characters.  Plan is to write more and keep on going.

 

Hope you all have a great holiday and I hope to see you all soon in Azeroth.

 

 

 

 

My Questioning Mind…


March 16th

Dear Journal,

I have been in this strange land of Orcs, Blood Elves, Trolls, Tauren and Goblins for quite some time, however, I have never felt compelled to write anything down since I arrived.  I thought that today I would remedy that.

My name is Leiluna Sungmoon and I am from Pandaria.  Yes, I’m one of those chubby little furry things with the strange accent and the weird ideas that seem to amuse some of my fellow Horde.  I will have to admit that some of their names are rather amusing as well, although, they seem to think that they are perfectly normal, silly beings that they are.

I could say that my life has definitely changed for the better since I left Pandaria, however, I’m not real sure that it has in all ways.  I am learning so many things since I left home that my mind is oftentimes spinning when I finally take the time to actually think about all of the changes that I have undertaken.

My life in Pandaria was probably much as it was for those of us that chose to leave our homeland. I had a family that I truly miss and hope to see again in the future and friends, I do miss my friends most of all. My parents were farmers and they would till the soil from sunup to sundown every day and go on as if there was nothing more enjoyable in life, well, having a good brew was one of the things that they enjoyed too.  I do miss those times and I do miss the warmth and support of my family.

The reason that I left Pandaria was because I wanted more out of life.  I wanted adventure, excitement and most of all, I wanted to find someone, a fellow, that I could call my own.  Our village was small and all of the eligible bachelors had been taken by the time I pulled my head out of the earth to notice that.  I was bound to be one of those old ladies that sits around and talks about the best way to brew a curative or the best way to brew a special beer.  I was young, I didn’t want my old age to be lonely and have no children to call my own.

When the Mists opened and revealed our land to these strangers from far away, life changed for most of us.  They spoke of these great lands far away and I could feel my imagination taking flight as I heard these tales.  They brought many strange customs and many strange languages to our homeland, some things were good and some things were bad.  One thing that they did do, all of them, was to reawaken the Sha that hadn’t been seen in our lands since the last Emperor.  I’m sure that most of us younglings thought that it was just a myth, a boogeyman to scare us when we were little, however, the Sha was real and once again was running rampant in the land.

These strangers with their strange ideas and strange ways of doing things not only awakened the Sha, they brought their own brand of greed and avarice with them.  There were two different factions and at first we thought that they would bring enlightenment with them, however, sad to say, that was not the case.  Some were here to explore the country and some were here to rape the countryside of all of its wealth and natural resources.

I grew enamored of the Horde because they seemed to be very aggressive in their endeavors to gain wealth as well as to feed their growing population, not only in Pandaria but in their homeland.  Little did I know where this would lead me. I thought the Blood Elves were so elegant and educated, that surely had their ideals were different than what I had heard of the rest, they knew how to fight not only with their physical abilities, they knew how to fight with their education.

Okay, I was a silly girl.  I saw these Rangers and they seemed so assured of themselves and they struck a romantic chord in my soul.   I was so sure that I would find a home with them and be able to be enlightened as they were.  I should have listened more closely to my teachers about how these strangers had no true enlightenment of “self” – they were the here and now people in both factions.  They had been at war for many centuries in their homelands and like a silly fool, I thought that I could take some of our teachings to them and make a difference.  I am not a monk, nor a teacher, I am but a lowly hunter that wanted to make a difference.

After much meditation, and much foolishness, I chose to travel to Kalimdor to see this land that was spoken of with much love.   I thought that this was a place that I could fit in and grow.

Upon my arrival in this city of Orgrimmar, I was presented to their great Warchief, Garrosh Hellscream and was surprised at how he reacted towards me.  I tried to explain why I had come and he just told me to get to work.  Well, okay, that wasn’t exactly a warm welcome and I did as I was told.

Once I got over my feelings of misgiving, I made some friends with a few Goblins, Tauren, not the Orcs so much because they scare me.   I found out that the goblins were treated pretty much the same way as I was when they arrived.  However, unlike them, I have a home to return too, their homes were destroyed by a natural catastrophe. Poor goblins are forever bound to the Horde for they have nowhere else to go.  I told them about Pandaria and told them how life was there and some of them seemed anxious to make the transition.  Someday, we will all go there, me to my home and them to go on to more adventures.

Luckily, I have been able to find some more people from my country and we have banded together to continue our own learning and teachings.  I know that we all spend a great deal of time in meditation trying to regain that inner peace.

I wanted excitement and adventure in my life and I definitely have achieved that, however, the cost has been dear.  I thought that some of my dearest friends were coming with me to Orgrimmar, alas, they chose to join the Alliance which seemed too passive to me.  Oh well, some day there will be peace and we can all be friends again.

What’s Next?


March 1st

Dear Journal,

I don’t know whether I should be angry or just be thankful that he was able to return home to me in one piece.  I want to shake some sense into him and then at the same time, I want to hold him tightly in my arms to make sure that he doesn’t disappear on me again.

Kal went to Stormwind to deliver some of the goods that we had collected for our contracts, pick up some more and to get paid for the work we had done.  That seemed like a normal thing to do and I always know that he will stay a little bit longer to visit with his friends that he has back there, which I don’t mind.  It’s a normal progression of things and shouldn’t have been a big deal.  I didn’t go because I had some things that I wanted to finish up here at the farm. This should have been a one day trip at most – at the most, not a two day sojourn without a word from him.

When Kal  finally got home, I was just coming out of the paddock where we keep our Yaks and I saw him limping up the road to the farm.  Normally, I would have rushed to him to welcome him back and to find out why the heck he was walking with a limp. No, this time I was a bit angry with the fact that his one day trip took a lot longer and he hadn’t even sent me word.

Come to find out, he had gone on an expedition of sorts with those friends of his that took him far afield.  Apparently, they had been hired by someone to go to the Hinterlands, lovely place to visit, to gather some information in regard to a recent attack and increased activity in the trolls in the area.  It appears that the trolls had been attacking some of the dwarfs living in the settlement there as well as ambushing a few farms.  The keyword that I think I’m questioning is “investigate” – to me that means to do a reconnaissance of the area, nothing more, nothing less.

From what Kal told me of this little side trip, which should have been much less than what it turned out to be, they ran into a band of trolls and had a skirmish that lasted a while.  Poor fellow got attacked by some ghouls, trolls, mages, priest and Elune only knows what else.  He had been bitten and chewed on by a ghoul as well as getting a flesh would in his shoulder.  Nothing serious, mind you, however, these wounds could have been prevented if he had just sad that he wasn’t going to Hinterlands with his friends.

At least someone had taken the time to address his injuries for him before he decided to come home to Pandaria.  The wounds aren’t serious and it looks as though they have been cleansed thoroughly and dressed properly. Naturally, I redid them all after taking a close inspection of my own.  I’m grateful that he was attended too when he was in Stormwind.

I now think that the next time he takes one of these trips of his, I am going to go with him instead of thinking that he won’t be lead astray into something that might get him killed.  I think it is high time that I make my presence known with his friends too because so far, I’ve only met them once in One Keg and they seemed likeable enough, however, after this trip, I can see that they can be a dangerous lot.  I can understand that they were in it for the money and I don’t see why Kal felt compelled to join in that because he has plenty of money of his own and isn’t that desperate.

We are supposed to go to the Jade Temple today to do some fishing as well as a few other things.  I know Kal would much rather stay home and sleep, however, this time, it’s not going to happen.  his wounds are not that serious and we have obligations that need to be met there.

I’m not a clingy woman by any means, however, with these things happening whenever he gets with his friends in Stormwind, I think that I am going to be a shadow following him around.  I need to find out what these people are about, they don’t seem to be the overly adventurous  about things and yet, they take on a task like this for mere pennies.  All I can see about them so far is that they are thieves and possibly, hired assassins.  As Kal’s companion, I have a right to know what he has gotten himself involved in.

Fun At The Faire…A Visit to Stormwind Too


April 9th

Dear Journal,

Oh, what a wonderful time we had last night at the Faire.  I had never been before, well, not since it supposedly has changed so much and I was pleasantly surprised.  Kal and I just walked the fairways, laughed and ate as much of the food as we could manage. I’m not surprised that we were able to get away from our duties for a while because I’ve never taken any time off since I’ve arrived in Panderia other than to spend the time on the farm when Kal is visiting his family.

I guess you could call this our first date.  Oh, he was very attentive and held my hand the whole time we were there,  when he could. I don’t think that I have had this much fun for a very long time and never enjoyed a man’s company as much as I did Kal’s.  Maybe it was because of the fact that I felt like I was with someone that cared about what I liked and didn’t like.  Oh, he almost choked at the face I made when he insisted that I tried the pickled Kodo’s foot.  Oh, that was nasty and the texture was like trying to chew on a dried jelly fish. We drank, talked and laughed the whole time we were there – the war was away from us and we could afford to forget it for a while.

We played on the carousel like a couple of little kids, trying to see who could race to the Murloc mount first.  Darn long leg of his, however, I’m sure that he did let me “win” a few times so that I wouldn’t feel bad or something.  Of course, he is a gentleman that way.  We even sat and ate near the food vendor for quite a while and had a few of the special Faire drinks.  Oh my, I know that we had to sit there for a while when we drank some of the Dark Moon Special Reserves.   I know that my head was spinning when Kal decided that we needed to go further down the fairway and I ended up having to lean against him for support to keep from falling over.  Oh, he teased me unmercifully about being a drunken Sentinel.  Oh, nothing would do that I had to try out the canon ride – it scared me half to death, I’ve been shot at with a canon before, I’ve never crawled in one and been shot out over the water like that one is set up to do.  Oh, it took me several tries to finally hit the target in the water and I was definitely starting to look like a drowned rat.

We even got to see quite a few people there at the Faire, both Horde and Alliance people.  Kal saw some of his friends from Shattrath and we had to stand around and have a good long chat.  They acted kind of surprised to see Kal with his girlfriend Sentinel – oh yes, he called me his girlfriend, not just his roommate like he normally does which usually causing a few raised eyebrows.  One little girl, a child of one of his friends kept tugging on Kal’s tabard that he had worn to keep his clothes a little bit cleaner – oh, nothing would do than for him to plop down in the dirt and talk to her.  I could hear some of what he was saying and he was reassuring the little girl that she was still is best girlfriend but he needed another grown-up girlfriend too.  He is such the heartbreaker, it seems.

I had never seen him just sit down with a little child before and I think I was more than pleasantly surprised at how he just knew how to say the right thing to her.  I guess that comes from having younger siblings too – he just made that little girl’s day when he kissed her on the tip of her nose and told her not to run off with some other guy while he was away.

We went and looked at all of the strange animals that were from all over Azeroth.  I told Kal that I hoped that I never ran into such a large elephant when we were out in the field and he just started laughing.  He said that his Mother had the same reaction too.  Oh, we rode the ponies all over the Faire too, jumping fences when we could and just racing around.  I know there were two very tired little ponies that we took back to the vendor.  Poor little things having to lug us around had to be hard on them, however, we had a great time.  We even rode on those little sandbox mounts too for a while and stopped and had some more to drink.

I was all for skipping over a trip through Stormwind, I didn’t want to run the risk of our running into Kal’s little Worgen friend.  However, Kal told me that we had to stop in Stormwind because he had promised that he would help the people from Fool’s Company put on their monthly show of “Ask the Dark Moon Guru” or some such thing.  It was a carnival trick thing, I suppose, although for the time that I stood there and listened, the fellow was able to come up with some very good answers to the questions.  Oh, Kal doesn’t take any money or anything for doing this sort of thing – he just likes to spend some time with some of his friends that he made while he was spending more time in Stormwind.

The whole thing with the Guru is that he has people ask him different questions and he will give them an answer, plus, his assistant will give them a prize afterwards.  I know that for the time that I stood there, I didn’t hear the fellow give any “wrong” answers to questions that he was asked, no matter how silly or trivial some of them were.  I was almost laughing out loud when a young lady asked him about a love interest that she had – something to do with mixed races getting together and loving one another.   I watched Kal’s face to see what his reaction was to the question and all I saw was a grin and rolling of his eyes. The Guru told the young girl that she should be with whomever she desired – hmm, I do hope that it wasn’t as bizarre of a match as it is with Kal’s parents, that could be troublesome if there are children involved later on.

I guess there was a market going on while the Guru was trying to do his show, so, rather than stand there and miss out on the rest of the stuff going on, I took a walk around the stalls to see the wares that were for sale.  I bet that Kal and I could make a fortune with the leather goods that we make and I know my herbs would sell like mad.

I was getting very tired by the time that the show was over with the Guru and was really ready to head back to Pandaria – I even suggested that we stay overnight in Paw ‘don.  Well, Kal just looked at me and laughed and told me that we could spend the night at the apartment over the warehouse that his Mother owned here in Stormwind.  Well, I have never seen so much stuff in my life – I now know where all of the leather is being sent when Kal and I ship it to Stormwind.

Oh my, the apartment is huge and has several bedrooms and the bathrooms – I was astounded at the bathrooms. They have huge bathtubs that you can almost lay down in and there is plenty of hot water thanks to Kal’s brother, Vashlan.  I guess being a mage, he could throw an enchant over the cisterns where we had instant hot water whenever we wanted it – that’s how they did it in Dalaran, I guess.  Oh, I could see the mixture of Sindorei tastes mixed in with the Kaldorei tastes of Kal’s Mother in that apartment.  It was very luxurious.

I did get to meet Kal’s brother, Vashlan.  He was quite the shock.  All done up in his mage robes, his hair is a very dark blue and he has a beard. If I wasn’t already interested in Kal, I would definitely give his brother a go.  Oh my, the robe he had on made him look so…regal.  He seemed a very nice fellow and he is a bit younger than Kal and I.  I guess he lives in Stormwind so that he can study with the mages there.  Kal mentioned something about High Borne blood running in their veins and that Vashlan was the family throw-back.  I was really surprised that they talked so openly about that.  Anyway, Vash’s eyes are more noticeably green than Kal’s and he said that it was from working with some Fel magic that had left a residual effect on them.  I just looked at Kal and he had a frown on his face.  I’m sure the brothers will be talking about this a bit more when they have the chance.  I don’t know much about mages, Vashlan is one of the few that I have ever met and he’s just a trainee, I guess.

Oh, Kal’s room is almost as big as our whole house in Halfhill.  I was really shocked at the furniture and the things that he had there.  He had moved quite a few of things from Dalaran to keep here in this apartment when they left.   I have never in my life seen such a bed – it was big enough for five or six people if they had to share that space. Yes, we both slept in the same bed and I will have to admit that the size of the bed had me pretty intimidated and I kept scooting over to get closer to Kal because I didn’t want to get lost in the bed.  I’ve never slept on silk sheets before either, I don’t know that I like them all that much, it feels too slippery.  Not to mention, the sheets kept making my nightgown ride up in the most embarrassing manner, I sure hope that Kal wasn’t taking any peeks during the night because when I woke up this morning, long before Kal did, my nightgown was almost completely off.  No, we didn’t do anything although it might have been a bit more difficult in that bed.

I met Magdamia while I was there and everything that Kal told me about her is true.  She’s a Draeni and very matter of fact as to how she wants things run in the business.  Kal told her that we would be sending some leather back when we got back to Pandaria, we hadn’t planned on coming to the Faire or we would have brought them with us to drop off.  I guess she is in charge of the warehouse and some of the contracts that are given out there for the employees to fill.  She even handed Kal a sizeable stack of contracts to look over and pick the ones that he thought we would be able to work on in our spare time.

I even saw weapons that were being sold there that were better than the gear that Kal and I have.  I wonder if we can get a discount if we buy any of it? Or if we can buy any of it?  It was kind of scary to see that there were weapons from the Horde as well as the Alliance being kept there. I haven’t ever asked Kal about his Mother’s company, however, after what I have seen in the warehouse, I think that I do need to start asking some questions.  At least I know how his family gets their wealth somewhat.

I also saw quite a few boxes that were partially covered with tarps in the back that definitely had the Horde symbol on them.  I wonder what was in those and why they are being kept in Stormwind or do the two companies run things back and forth between the two.  Am I involved with people that are smuggling goods to both sides?  I’ll have to be careful how I phrase my questions to Kal when we get home to Halfhill.  This worries me.  Is this the stuff that I should report to my superiors – I’m in a bit of a confused state of mind because this is a place that isn’t in Pandaria and I’m not on duty either.  It has nothing to do with us in Pandaria and its Kal’s personal family business.

Well, I guess we’re ready to pack up our things and head back to Halfhill now.  Breakfast was very enjoyable and Kal ate like there was no tomorrow.  Of course, he likes the food in Pandaria, however, he says that he still likes the food here in Stormwind.  We had some little tea cakes that were very delicately made that I knew weren’t anything like I’ve ever seen before.

Meeting Old Acquaintances


March 23rd

Dear Journal,

I almost feel like I did when I woke up in Ironforge that last time this morning. Almost for the same reason, however, it was well worth it. Who would have thought that I would run into some old acquaintances in One Keg.

Kae and I had been out scouting around in Kun Lai and decided that we needed to pick up a few supplies, which really wasn’t needed as much as we didn’t want to have to make the long trek back to our main camp.  So, we saw One Keg off in the distance and decided that it wouldn’t hurt to go through there and stop for the night.

The Inn there isn’t very big and the place was indeed very crowded with people from Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms and predominantly Alliance. Neither Kae nor I are crazy about crowded places, however, we did enjoy the Inn for  a meal and a few drinks. As we were sitting there quietly talking to one another, I heard someone call my name.  That really surprised me, it’s not often that you run into someone you know when you’re out in the field away from the major cities – One Keg is definitely not a major city, it’s barely a village.  

It happens that a few people that I met in Stormwind a long time ago had decided to come to Panderia as civilians  to explore the land and I assume to do whatever profession they have.  It was nice to be able to talk with them again after all of this time with no one other than Kae to talk with.  Of course, all that talking makes one thirsty and the rounds of drinks started circulating amongst the group. 

Oh, it was a marvelous time and I think that Kae got to see a side of me that she’s never seen before. Here I was away from the Sentinels and I was acting like just one of the people.  She’s never seen me in a completely social setting and I think that she was genuinely shocked and pleased.  Of course, we were all trying to tell one another what all we had been doing since we had gotten to Panderia and laughing about some of the old times back in Stormwind. Kae was very quiet during all of this and it finally dawned on me that she might actually be a little bit shy when you take her out of that Sentinel environment that she has grown accustomed too. Naturally, we didn’t mention what we were doing in Kun’lai other than some hunting and gathering pelts for the family business.  Some people don’t care for Sentinels sometimes.

We decided to stay the night after all of the drinking and talking.  The big problem with that was the fact that there were no rooms at the Inn.  Kae and I decided to pitch our tent outside and hoped that it wouldn’t be that much of a problem for Innkeeper.

Oh yes, we had both had a few drinks and pitching that tent was an exercise that I will definitely remind myself that it isn’t a good plan to put up a tent when you’ve been drinking.  After we got the tent up we both went inside to escape from the winds that had started blowing off the mountains.  It was a very chill wind and reminded me very much of Northrend.  That smell of snow was in the air and we were in hopes that the snow wouldn’t follow the wind.

I’ll admit that it was really cold in that tent and we had no trouble snuggling up next to one another for sheer body heat.  No nothing happened, we just lay there under the furs and slept like we didn’t have a care in the world.

At least we had the Inn where we could eat breakfast this morning after we broke down our tent and got our supplies packed away to start another day of scouting. The other guests were still sleeping as we made our escape from the area so that we could get back to work.  I had fun last night and I think that Kae had a good time too although she hasn’t said very much about it this morning.

I’ll admit that our relationship has changed a lot since we had that emotionally charged conversation a few days ago.  I find that I am noticing more things about Kae, her long white hair that reminds me very much of my Mother and how her tattoos aren’t so heavy that you can’t see the beauty of her face for them.  She even makes me a little nervous sometimes with the way that she looks at me and gives me a small smile.  Oh, we’re still friends and we still talk quite a bit, however, I think we are both aware of the physical tension that is playing games with us right now too. Sometimes full disclosures of the kind that Kae gave me will make you feel a bit awkward afterwards for a while.

Kae and I have been together for quite a while as friends and co-workers and we haven’t given in to the physical needs that we both have…yet.  I know that it is coming just as sure as I will wake up tomorrow in those snow-covered mountains.  There is definitely a bond and feelings between us that goes beyond the working relationship with the Sentinels. I think that we are taking things very slowly because neither one of us wants to overstep our bounds in the relationship.  I think that those bounds have shifted completely and that’s why I feel so awkward at times.  We will just have to wait and see how things have changed as time goes on, I’m not rushing into anything and I don’t think that Kae is either.

I’m getting “that look” from Kae right now because she is already finished her breakfast and I am just sitting here in the Inn prolonging the stay while I write this down. I dread having to go out there and start working with my head feeling like it is going to ache all day, however, that’s not what we are paid to do.  I need to get this packed away and start traveling yet again.  Yes, I know, I really should not drink because there are times when I overindulge and my headache today is a result of that.

Kal
